Another Travel Guide: Wikitravel

I’m in the midst of planning my next big vacation…Peru. As always, I am on the lookout for good travel guides and I stumbled upon Wikitravel. It’s great! Just like Wikipedia, people can update it with their own thoughts and suggestions which is great for travel recommendations. I always like reading what the average person thinks is fun to do, see, or eat in another country.


I was checking out the page for Cuzco, Peru since that is where we need to go to start our trek to Machu Picchu and I saw this picture:

SICK!!!! roasted guinea pig.

Hey, Kim! I’m glad you liked what you saw at Wikitravel. We’ve been working pretty hard for a few years to make really great travel guides, and it’s nice to hear that you like what we’ve done so far.

I wanted to add that *anybody* is welcome to edit, add and update our travel guides. So many things change so fast in the world — restaurants close, hotels open, museums change their prices, bars change their hours — that we really want help from *everyone* to keep our information up-to-date.

About that Guinea Pig, it’s called CUY and i remember when I was little I used to eat that with some spicy potatoes, it was actually quite good, tasted just like rosted chicken. hahaha
